The Gray Dog Lodge Luxury Suites

Bathing and Grooming Services



Our boarding suites are spacious and comfortable. 

All pets are given 4 potty breaks daily (at no charge)

We do not charge for giving your pet its medications. You must label all medications clearly and complete a sheet with specific instructions on administering the medications. 

We recommend that you bring your pet's own food. This will eliminate upset tummies due to a sudden switch in food. Should you forget your pet's food then we will feed our house food at a charge of $1 per day.

You are welcome to bring your pet's bedding.  We do have bedding available at no charge.

Upon request we will place a Kuranda raised bed with in your dog’s room.  There is no charge for the bed, but availability is limited and is not guaranteed for Gray Paw Suites.

We offer 3 levels of boarding accommodations so even the most discriminating dog will find something she will love.

These are private 8 x 9 rooms and include 20 minutes of staff playtime daily.
